Just to close out this section of the day, on last night’s The Daily Show, Jon Stewart introduced a show that never made it to Nickelodeon, Skippy and the Tick. This came from a comment made by Bill O’Reilly who said of Jason Greenslate, “This guy is a parasite… He’s a rat.” To which Stewart responded:
It’s very funny, but the truth is that I would totally watch that show! It’s got that whole The Odd Couple meets Archy and Mehitabel meets the Black Death. What’s not to like? I even have an idea for a pilot episode called, “Skippy Gets a Blood Transfusion.” And I have a catchy theme song for it. The chords are:
Here are the lyrics:
Floyd is his one tick!
You may call him a parasite
But Skippy stays thin as a stick!
Now if I can just pry the rights away from Jon Stewart, it will be smooth sailing!
